In the Heat of the Genes-vs-Culture Battle

The battle rages of culture-vs-heredity, nurture-vs-nature, genes-vs-environment in a documentary series from Norwegian TV called “Brainwash.”

Simon Baron Cohen says in episode one that he’s “making a moderate proposal: don’t forget about biology. It’s not all biological, but it’s partly biological.” True enough: it is the 100% nurturists who are extremists, while us 50-50 types are moderates.

Seven parts:
1/7 The Gender Equality Paradox
2/7 The Parental Effect
3/7 Gay/Straight
4/7 Violence
5/7 Sex
6/7 Race
7/7 Nature or Nurture
